IMPORTANT NOTE: This in-browser emulation system runs these games kind
of slowly (they take a while to start, too - don't worry, they'll get there) and does not currently preserve modifications (such as
creation of save files) between sessions. A modern Mac version of one of
the games, A Mess 'o Trouble, with save support and other features
besides is currently available for purchase for only 5$ here (bugfix info here) with ports of the others (and to other systems) planned.
A disk image containing the following hybrid text/point-and-click adventures and tool:
Ray Dunakin's Ray's Maze World Builder adventure game trilogy: Ray's Maze, Another Fine Mess and A Mess O' Trouble. These partly non-linear games take place in an anomalous region of space-time discovered by a being known only as Ray who decided to start charging admission to would-be adventurers. As Fearless Frank (and later, optionally Daredevil Dawn), the player must adventure through diverse worlds in search of treasure and a way back to Earth. Important puzzle chains are generally independent from each other and can be done in any order. Many optional puzzles and secrets also await, rewarding the player with Maximum-Value and Bonus Objects; the player is scored at the end of the game based on what they have. RPG elements are also present - RPG-style battles can occur, waiting will recover health, and food, water and sleep are all important (with sleeping in beds being especially restful and enlightening).
Ray's fourth and final World Builder adventure game, Twisted! - a movie parody that soon turns into a different movie parody (with references to the source material) and a full-blown political satire. While there is only one main quest chain, optional puzzles and secrets that reward the player with treasures still abound.
WorldBuilder, the tool used to create the above games. Originally created in 1986 by William C. Appleton for Silicon Beach Software after being used to create Enchanted Scepters, it was released by him as freeware in 1995. The freeware version, 1.2, is included in this disk image, and includes supporting documentation and files by Ray Dunakin, including an instructional demo game containing Ray's trademark brand of humor.
